What You Give To Me - Reprise

Forest Child, by Sitara Leota

I am buried under work just now, over one hundred hours in the last pay period, and likely the same in this one, whole extra days at a time and we don't get overtime either. There is really no choice given the constraints. I am being as careful as I can, but one thing I can't do is get around to the blogs of my friends and teachers.

What You Give To Me

You sit in windows
When you choose, on your own terms.
It's a gift to me,
Like the onyx vase
Was last year.
Because you sit
In my view like that,
With near perfect poise
For sad eyes like mine to see,
I offer you this.
